Estuary - Years 4 & 5
Welcome to Class Estuary where you will find Miss Bramley and Miss Stroud with Year 4 and Year 5.
We follow the New National Curriculum with much of our learning planned around the current topic or theme. These topics run either for a whole or half a term.
In order to enhance our learning, we regularly go on trips which provide us with real life experiences and knowledge.
Weekly homework is set which usually comprises of spellings, a times table focus and another piece of topic, literacy or maths. As the children become more independent learners, the homework may often be in the form of a research project with a choice of how it is presented.
The pupils in Class Estuary also have a number of jobs which promotes their independence and ensures the smooth running of their lessons.
Towards the end of the academic year, the Year 5s are invited to apply to be buddies to the ‘Rising Fives’ who will be starting school in the following September. They then meet their buddies in the Summer Term, thus helping them settle into Huntley and providing a familiar face when the ‘big day’ arrives.
